Courtesy bus available to & from Darwin airport. Check in fast & friendly. Chinese restaurant so bit average go across to the Rydges Resort for better food. Room comfortable & quiet except for the air conditioning. Good hotel for a one night stay when flying in & out. Only problem is the internet; can't believe you still get charged to... More

This is an expensive hotel in peak season and is bellow average. for what you should expect from a major brand at an airport. The building is old and shows it. Lights did not work and had not been corrected and the check in was a farce because the system was down. The restaurants were fine and the service at... More

We thought we were staying at the resort next door but it was the Hotel, One of our group thought it looked a little like a jail, however once inside it was a clean and well equipped 2 bedroom apartment that we had for a night. The chines Restaurant scared me, but once in we were blown away. Beautiful steamed... More

I was skeptical to start with when he hallways smelt of paint and picture frames were on the floor leaning against the wall. My room was even more of a let down with dust surrounding every piece of furniture on the carpet. There were even dust markings to show where some of the furniture had been moved slightly. I was...

Handy to the airport but a fair distance to the city. Rooms are OK, nice pool, bar and restaurant. Had an issue in the restaurant where due to the accent of the waitress there was confusion when I went to pay the bill. I put the meal to my room and let reception staff know about it when I checked... More

Stayed for 7 hours, charged $249... Nothing that hasn't already been said. Overpriced. Some attempts at a refurb are happening as our floor (4) stunk like fresh paint, to the point of nostril burning. Bathroom could have used a good scrub. Room was quiet, had to open the window in bathroom as room steamed up and I thought the fire... More

Flight was cancelled, so was awarded a free nights stay in this hotel. Fairly pleased with the location to airport and decor of the hotel is nice. Upon check out the next day... More

Nowadays Darwin isn't very remote, so the cost of this hotel, for the service is really poor. The whole hotel needs to be refurbished, its looks awful. The rooms are dated, the bathrooms suite is poor, I have had better in dongas. The choice of an asian restaurant downstairs, to me is surprising, Im not sure how many people come... More

Overpriced, noisy, poorly appointed. This hotel ticks no boxes. I stay in over 50 hotels a year in 5-6 countries and can not recall worse value for money. OK, I get it is an airport hotel, associated with excited chatter and people going places, but this is just poor. Dated décor, uncomfortable bed, no water or soft drink in the... More

We stayed one night before leaving Darwin on an early morning flight. We booked a superior room and were a little disappointed with the room for the price we paid. The furniture was dated and the TV was small. Despite this the room was clean and had all we needed for a comfortable stay. Although being close to the airport... More
